Not so scary

We had Danielle for our guide and she was very nice. The Ghost tour itself was not scary or intriguing in any way, in fact it was boring. I have been on a few ghost tours before but this one was the worst, it was more of a factual tour about the distillery district. It appears that there were tidbits of spooky occurrences that were so stretched out to be a huge story but in the end, we would all be standing there like, "This was it?". During our tour, it was so boring that three of the guests on the tour just wandered off and never returned. I would not recommend this ghost tour.

Got some really fun stories from this tour. It was a nice complement to the normal walking tour I did earlier in the day: it's neat to get different angles on the same stories and events.
